The Houston Astros will be looking to press their 2-1 advantage in the American League Championship Series, after a rain out eliminated a potential travel day if the series moves back to Houston from New York, as The Inquisitr reported. Houston turns to veteran righty Zack Greinke, a midseason acquisition who will be making his second start of the series, to push the AL East pennant-winning Yankees to within one game of elimination. Greinke turned in a solid, if unspectacular outing in Game 1, allowing three runs over six innings, albeit in a losing cause.
The Yankees will counter with their Game 1 starter, Masahiro Tanaka, who hopes to continue where he left off with six shutout innings in Game 1, when he takes the hill in the game that will stream live from the Bronx.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:08 p.m. ET, 7:08 p.m. CT, and 5:08 p.m. PT at the 54,251-seat Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York City, New York, on Thursday, October 17.
Wednesday’s postponement may have worked in the Yankees’ favor, allowing Tanaka to return to the mound on his regular, four days of rest to face the Astros a second time in the series, as MLB.com reported. Tanaka also threw only 68 pitches in his Game 1 outing — and has been a postseason stopper for the Yankees, compiling a slim 1.32 ERA over seven playoff starts for the Bronx Bombers.
For the Astros, they hope to duplicate the magic produced by their 2017 midseason pitching acquisition, Justin Verlander, who came over from the Detroit Tigers that year to lead Houston to the first World Series victory in franchise history.
In 2019, the Astros traded for Greinke in July, from the Arizona Diamondbacks, as Sports Illustrated reported. The trade immediately paid off, as the 35-year-old rolled up an 8-1 record with a 3.02 ERA while pitching for the sixth team of his career.
